Second edition of the brochure on Frankfurt's wild meadows has been published

Meadows, Perennials, Butterflies

(ffm) Now it's here: the second edition of the brochure "Meadows, Perennials, Butterflies" - hot off the press and up-to-date. In it, the Parks Department provides information with numerous new illustrations and texts about Frankfurt's wild meadows and perennial areas and the measures to preserve and promote the plant and animal life there.

From now on, the brochure can be ordered free of charge from the Parks Department by e-mail <link> . From the end of August, it will also be available at city libraries, the Citizens' Advice Bureau and the Central Citizens' Advice Bureau (Zeil 3).

Meadows are a particularly valuable habitat. About half of all plant species native to Germany and 55 percent of the species on the "Red List" occur here. However, due to land consolidation, the intensification of agriculture and the use of large machines and pesticides, there are fewer and fewer pastures and meadows and thus fewer and fewer insects that serve as food for many native bird species.

In the city, creating more meadows and perennial gardens is therefore an important contribution to more plant diversity, more insect diversity - and subsequently to more bird song. With flower and grass meadows as well as perennial areas in the city, the Green Spaces Office of the City of Frankfurt replaces monotonous uniform greenery in public spaces - and thus creates valuable habitat for a species-rich animal and plant world: in parks, on open spaces on the outskirts of the city, along streets and on islands in the middle.
